‘Bennifer’ Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez returned in 2021

While Robert Pattinson officially took up the cape and cowl from Affleck in 2021, the former Batman still made headlines.

Around April and May, rumors about ‘Bennifer’ returning rumbled online. Fans followed their summer love, the vacations, and all the stolen kisses.

Around 17 years since the two split, fans took everything the couple had to offer.

With the duo back again, couples channeled the Dark Knight actor and his sweetheart for Halloween 2021.

One costume can prove daunting enough to think up. However, a Halloween couple’s costume often proves even more difficult.

Luckily, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez gave plenty of couples inspiration for 2021.

“They may have been summer’s ‘It’ couple after rekindling their relationship, but this early fall masked Met Gala grab will go down in the books as one of the year’s most memorable moments (and passionate, too!),” People noted.

Several outlets pointed to the event as a perfect couples costume for 2021. While keeping their masks over their faces, Affleck grabbed J.Lo for a “kiss” without even removing them.

“Ben keeps it classy and simple in a suit and bow tie. For Jennifer, you can show off your wild side with a wide-brimmed cowboy hat, rustic jewelry like a brown leather choker, brown gown, and leather belt,” Bustle reported.

You can likely expect some nerdy boyfriend out there to dress as Affleck’s Batman from the DCEU, though.

Besides the Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez Met Gala look, couples have a much broader costume choice for Halloween 2021.

The Bustle article suggested their Venice Red Carpet look. They mentioned that it marked the couple’s “first red carpet appearance as Bennifer 2.0.” However, it features very little change for the ‘Ben’ in a couple’s costume.

Though the article also suggested the couple’s appearances at sport outings. The duo attended a Boston Red Sox Game and a Lakers game with some simpler, less-formal looks.

“Much like the infinite love of Jen and Ben, there’s an endless amount of Bennifer Halloween costume ideas for you and your beau to choose from this year,” Bustle said. “Get retro, get regal, whatever you choose, you’re sure to have the party paparazzi on your tail.”

And don’t forget that nerdier couples can always use Batman V Superman as inspiration while still calling it a Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez couples costume for 2021.
